There is an article that helped me learn to truly revise my essays, the title is, “Revision Strategies of Student Writers”, it is by Nancy Sommers. It is about different strategies students can use to revise their paper. She stated in her paper that for many students the idea of revision makes them uncomfortable and can lead to them not spending very much time working on it. She found that the students were never taught how to truly revise their essays (Sommers 380-382). After reading and
I focused more on passing a class rather than boosting my writing skills. Now that I am in college, I take writing seriously. Throughout the years, my writing process has drastically changed. As a writer, I will continue to advance my writing skills. Prewriting is significant when preparing for an essay, although this step is most of the time ignored.
Hi Professor Fernandez, This is Kim Phuong Nguyen. I took your Chemistry 110 course Spring 2015 and I found it to be one of the most enjoyable courses I have ever taken. You may not remember me, as I often came into lab on Mondays when you were there. Chemistry has always been a more challenging course for me, but I was very proud of that A I received from your class. I know that you are a busy professor, so I will just get straight to the point.
With the fall semester quickly coming to a close, I have been reflecting about my writing intensiveEnglish class. This semester I have accomplished a variety of projects and assignments and have learneda lot about professional writing. I learned how to write a great resume and how to use its differentformats. I have practiced writing many emails, business letters, transmittal letters, and cover letters.My three largest projects that I completed were a job recommendation report, instructions on how tomake pumpkin cheesecake, and a brochure for my future cupcake business. All these projects havehelped me to master my communication skills which I will further reflect upon below.
He videoed a woman named Renee, as she solved an algebra problem on software designed to teach the concepts to eighth grade students. Schoenfeld observed that the average eighth grader would work on the problem for a few minutes, then give up. Renee worked with the software for twenty two minutes experimenting until she finally understood. Schoenfeld felt that being good at mathematics was not just
She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”. When I finish reading the whole book I started doing my essay so I could turn it in the next day so she could grade it and give it back to me the following week. Monday came and we started class with a free write reflecting on how good we did on the essay. I wrote that I was confident that I was going to get a seventy on it. But when the teacher give it back to me I saw my grade and got surprises because it had a huge eighty nine percent with a circle around it and a smile face on top saying excellent job.
Not because I knew to do this skill in two different languages, but because I was going to be able to do my homework in English and share what I had written in my “weekend journal” to the class. Over the course of four years my teachers and Mrs. Smith were proud of me because I had become basically fluent in English. They told me I had improved and advanced a lot in my studies and was ready to take the final test to end with my ELA classes. I agreed to take the test and passed with a good score; back then I was
“This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department. “I’m very excited to be a part of this school, staff, administration and the great community.” “[Like the Freshmen,] I’m lost finding rooms,” said David Shirk, Conifer’s new Algebra and Geometry teacher. “It’s really hard to get a grasp on the layout of these rooms and the room numbers. But [this year] is going to be excellent! I feel at home already and everybody is so nice and helpful.
The rationale was that the senior management level received emails from parents concerning the workload of students’ homework. The setbacks of the initiative were obvious, in particular for LOTE subjects, which require the learners to practise on a daily basis to enhance retention. In Middle School, the LOTE teachers can still allocate a lesson once a week to revise the contents covered in the week, but daily practice was much more depended on the student’s own initiative and motivation. In Senior School, however, there were too much to cover in each lesson, the teacher had to teach in every single lesson. If the students only given homework according to the fixed schedule, the teaching and learning would be greatly affected.
I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals. I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
My short term goal for this week and the week coming forward is to continue to use my time wisely to study for the last few test that we will have. I have progressed a lot this month with getting my grade up. In the beginning of the month I can honestly say I did not use my time like I should have. I did not fully read the chapters I was given, and my grade showed. The second quiz my grade went up a little more, and during that time I did take the time to read some, but not all chapters.
The examples that the author gave are very basic but Im able to expand on them. Another example of this that I see would be with the work to rule going on. On 20/10/15 I sat through a meeting for a student who has an Ea at lunch time and because of the work to rule we had reasonable expectations of what the EA could do during the meeting. With the concepts of sterotypes and Generalizations, I see this everyday in the halls of Korah. Students look at someone of the kids in the resource class and just make assumptions about there intelligence or their disability.
